June 23 Sunset Series

Racing Comments Off on June 23 Sunset Series

Ben said he brought just enough wind with him from Saskatoon so we could compete (just enough wind for about 3 boats, of 13).  Ben, Lewis and Tanys were usually at or near the front of the pack tonight.  Big ups to Patty and Sydney for running races! Subtotals from the whole series have been calculated.  Awards will be
handed out next week. J.

June 16 Sunset Series

Racing Comments Off on June 16 Sunset Series

Well, the wind forecast didn’t live up to its promises.  We did not get NE 30 km/h, apparently we got easterly winds from 24 to 27 km/h. I am not complaining, because we also did not get rained on (as promised).  It was nice, whatever we got. Thanks to Mike Hesseltine and Leigh Campbell for doing Race Committee. Full results are posted on the regatta page. Jaime.

Thanks to Lewis Oteruelo and Patty Coons for doing RC on June 2nd and Mark Lammens for doing RC on June 9th.

Comments for June 9th:

15 boat fleet and real tight racing. On the ground a sailor found a price tag, it read LP plus the bar code.  That usually means the first 2 races would be won by LP. Timur Rudnitskiy and Dick White were out for the first time of the year, Dick warmed up and showed his speed in race 3. Dick quote, “you need to sail to get good at sailing”. Ilia fresh off of his Wabamun success were he won a race was in the mix with a 1,2 to go with his 11 and 8. Ben had a 2, 3, 3 for 3rd on the night.

T.O. Randy started strong with a 3,2 and was the most over in race 4, but went back……….AND NEXT TIME WE WILL HAVE THE GENERAL RECALL FLAG IN THE BOAT. although I was told my start was also ‘too good”. 2 Europe’s, Jaime and Kristine were in the mix and finished with equal total points, Kristine winning the tie breaker, the loud hard sail can startle you when they jibe right beside you. When Pat Byrns drops his hiking pants off, plan to hike, discourage him from picking them up. Lewis fresh off his Apprentice win at the Western Masters was a little late from his celebrity golf tourney. Still got out for the last 3. Tanys’s was happy with a dry boat, Sydney would be happy with a sail that was only 10 years old vs 15.
Mountain Madness is this weekend, lets do this again on the weekend.
